The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Wyoming fell by 60 on Sunday as the state received reports of more than 170 recoveries over the weekend.
The Wyoming Department of Health, in its coronavirus update, reported 70 new laboratory-confirmed COVID cases since Friday, along with 42 new probable cases.
The department has stopped releasing updates on Saturday, so the report Sunday was the first issued since Friday.
Since Friday, the department said it also received new reports of 172 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases of coronavirus, leaving the state with 702 active cases, a decline of 60.
Fremont County had 106 active cases Sunday; Teton County had 89; Carbon County had 68; Sweetwater County had 61; Natrona had 60; Uinta had 54; Laramie had 52; Lincoln had 40; Albany had 34; Park had 32; Sheridan had 27; Converse had 18; Campbell had 15; Platte had 13; Big Horn had 12; Goshen had nine; Washakie had four; Hot Springs, Sublette and Weston had two, and Johnson and Niobrara had one.
Crook County had no active cases as of Sunday.
Active cases are determined by adding the total confirmed and probable coronavirus cases diagnosed since the illness first surfaced in Wyoming on March 12, subtracting the number of recoveries during the same period among patients with both confirmed and probable cases and taking into account the number of deaths attributed to the illness.
Fourteen counties reported new confirmed cases Sunday. Fremont County had 19 new cases and Sweetwater County reported 15.
The increase in confirmed and probable cases brought the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the illness was first detected in Wyoming in March to 53,795.
Of those, 52,431 have recovered, according to Department of Health figures.
